Francia is good. But I doubt if sometime in the future,  a new nation comes in in the name of France :-)

No we are not naming a continent Minnesota. It's not superior and it shows favouritism.

No I don't think so. Names ending in -ia are better.

How many continents in the real world end with -ia? Two out of seven?
And how many continents do we already have ending with -ia? Five out of seven? Disproportionate.

And Olathe is pronounced like Oh-lay-thuh, so it has the same ending vowel sound as America, Africa, and Antarctica.

Either way, now that we have nations on the yellow and pink continents, we should let the nations on those continents choose the names. Eltebena and Panaulas are on the yellow continent, and Shambhala Sangha is on the pink continent. They should get to choose the names because popular sovereignty is the way to go!

Which continent? And also, that's a quite difficult name to pronounce.

I still think Olathe should be a name of a continent because it's a beautiful word that means "beautiful"

Updated Continental Map

Post  Great Eurussia on Thu Mar 13, 2014 1:33 pm



I have this worldwide command for my Eurussian Armed Forces and maybe it will be good to use as a new guide for naming the new continents on our map.



http://s8.postimg.org/6x7xciykz/EAF_UCC_Blank.png

For the original continents, here they are: (abbreviations are the colors)


  • (V) Asia 
  • (B) Atlantis 
  • (R) Olympia 
  • (G) Oceania 
  • (Y) Polynesia 
  • (O) Micronesia 
  • (P) Mnemosyne



And for the new continents, I rearranged it and used temporary names!


  • (LV) Outer Asia 

  • (LG) Outer Oceania 

  • (LR) Outer North Atlantis 

  • (LB) Outer West Atlantis

  • (LY) Outer Northwest Mnemosyne 

  • (LP) Outer Southwest Mnemosyne

Thanks, I'll write a post pertaining to this when I get home, and we will be using this new map division for the official continent naming division. As for names, those will be in the post that i will write.

Well, the rose continent in my older post was combined with another nation, so I think this post will not follow through.

Post  Dictatorship of Panaulas on Fri Mar 14, 2014 7:48 am

As a (self appointed) Spokesperson for the nations of the new world, I believe the way the continents have been divided up is terribly unjust. Each greater body of land/ land mass should be a seperate continent, not many large land masses combined. An example:
Light Yellow (known as *shudders*  Outer Northwest Mnemosyne) would be divided into two continents. One would the major land mass (where I am situated) and the other would be the 3 smaller land masses (where Traptical and Elbeterna are situated). This is a better way of showing the differences in culture represented by the HUGE distances we are playing with. I would be happy to divide the continents up into a much more sensible array, if that is the general conssenses.

I agree, there should be less integration.

But what about our main island of Dromoda.

We are a giant land mass and by itself a continent.
